The Albion football team lost its second straight game this past Saturday at home to Marian College from Indianapolis, Ind. The team was looking for its first out of league win this season.
The game began with Albion having a couple opportunities to put the ball in the end zone. These two opportunities resulted from two defensive plays by the Britons. One was a fumble recovery by Jacob Heinrich, Rochester Hills junior, and the other was an interception by C.J. Carroll, Warren sophomore.
“We underperformed the first half,” said Jeremy Green, Chattanooga, Tenn., junior, and defensive lineman.
The Britons spoiled both these opportunities to put the ball in the endzone, but did tack on a 32-yard field goal by Mychal Galla, Muskegon senior. This gave the Britons a 3-0 lead early in the game.
“We moved the ball but struggled to convert in the redzone,” said Spencer Krauss, Tipton sophomore, and quarterback.
After the Britons failed to score on their second possession, Marian put their first points on the board with a three-yard touchdown run. This opportunity was set up on a 59-yard pass. Marian put together two other scoring drives to make it 21-3.
“The second half we did better and shut them out,” said Charlies Green, Chattanooga, Tenn., senior.
Krauss got pulled after the first half and Alex Harris, Hanover sophomore, took over for the rest of the game as quarterback.
Despite being benched, Krauss remains optimistic about next week’s game.
“We’re excited to play Trine,” Krauss said. “They’re a great team, and hopefully we come well prepared.”
